The new housing provides access to all the D750’s formidable array of functions, features two fiber-optic connectors and two bulkheads (with optional Nikonos V, Ikelite and S6 connectors), and is compatible with an extensive range of accessories, including underwater lenses, dome and flat ports, and viewfinders (straight and angled).

Technical Specifications

The SUBAL ND750 housing is crafted from a solid block of high-grade seawater-resistant aluminum, which is anodized and put through a chemical hardening process. SUBAL is the only underwater housing manufacturer to use this patented, hard-coat anodizing method. A triple-layer powder coating is added, giving the housing an elegant finish and further protecting it from the environment. All shafts and screws are made of high-alloy chrome-nickel steel to extend operational lifetime. The advanced manufacturing process and use of high-grade materials ensure that your investment will last a lifetime. Like all SUBAL housing, the ND750 is equipped with the SUBAL Quick Lock closure system for maximum safety.

SUBAL Professional Standard Features

The SUBAL ND750  integrates years of accumulated experience with significant engineering breakthroughs.

  • The SUBAL Quick Lock System is a precise and robust locking system that eliminates accidental opening and has proven to be the most reliable on the market.
  • The new Port Lock System secures the extension ring (EXR) to the bayonet housing and provides the means to secure these components with ease.
  • The lens Release Latch allows for easy lens exchange without removing the camera from the housing.
  • A visual and audible warning Leak Alarm comes as standard on every SUBAL housing.
  • The SUBAL Special Saddle System for quick and precise positioning of the camera body inside the housing makes misalignment impossible.

Optional Viewfinder Options

In addition to the standard viewfinder, SUBAL has developed various options to meet the demands of underwater photographers. The viewfinder is one of the most important elements for improving creativity in underwater imaging. All SUBAL viewfinders are manufactured from sea-grade aluminum with an anodized casing. High-quality, multi-coated optical glass ensures the highest resolution and optimum light transmission. A simple interchangeable system makes it possible for the user to fit, remove or change any of the SUBAL’s viewfinders whenever needed. The SUBAL GS180 straight viewfinder provides 150% magnification of the camera image. The eyepiece of the new WS45 viewfinder is at a comfortable 45° angle to the camera’s viewfinder.  With a magnification factor of 150%, the visible image is 2.5 times larger than the standard viewfinder. The WS45 also rotates 360° with click stops every 90° to suit different viewing angles and image orientation. This is especially helpful for macro shooting or for subjects on the seabed as well as those tricky under/over, half-and-half shots. SUBAL’s latest innovation is the new PS30 prism viewfinder. The viewfinder is specially designed for video recording and facilitates shooting on the seabed and under/over, half-and-half shots.
